Elizabeth Banks Set To Star in a New James Gunn-Produced Horror Film
When James Gunn isn't working on Guardians of the Galaxy and other Marvel movie stuff, he's producing fun horror movie projects. Last year he produced the crazy movie The Belko Experiment and this year he's got another horror film in the pipeline.
The new film doesn't have a title, but Elizabeth Banks (Slither) is set to star in the movie! The movie is being directed by David Yarovesky (The Hive) from a script written by Brian and Mark Gunn. I think it's awesome that Gunn works with his family on these film projects.
The movie is being produced to the H Collective and it will start production this Spring. James Gunn had this to say in a statement:
"Elizabeth and I have been on the same artistic page since we first met when she auditioned for Slither back in 2005. She’s since remained one of my best friends in the world, and I’ve been fighting tooth and nail to work with her again. She’s the perfect partner to Yarvo, the H Collective and myself in creating this very special project."
Unfortunately, there are no details available on what the story for this project will be, but if Gunn is excited about it, so am I! I tend to agree with his taste in movies.
Banks recently wrapped The Happytime Murders and she is currently in development on Sony’s Charlie’s Angels, which she will direct and produce.
